This was our first stay at Riverside. We had plans to stay at different Casino & Resort but they were booked up. We discovered Riverside accepted hotel vouchers from other Casinos. The room was large and very clean. We enjoyed our two free nights there. We will plan to return to Riverside soon.

This place is a fantastic value. Located just 15 minutes away from Iowa City it is a luxurious oasis. Take a visit to the spa! If you join their rewards program they often send out vouchers to redeem for cheap rooms!

We paid $129 when others in line were paying $50 even though we told them we were there to gamble. Casino points are only kept three months. Buffet was average. When ask... More

We have stayed many times. The rooms are clean, comfortable and modern. The golf course is one of the best in the state. The casino is pretty small, and if you want table games the selection is ridiculously limited. The buffet is average at best but the cafe is pretty good option. We keep coming back because its anice little... More

Very nice hotel and casino. Modern room with glass walled shower. Very risque for Iowa! (There is a curtain, operated with a wall switch.) Buffet was just so-so. Other negative was having to pay for internet.

I came here in early May 2015 for a poker tournament and found that casino to be rather nice. It is remote, which is to be expected in Iowa. Just a few minutes south of Iowa City and about 30 minutes south of the CID airport. The building is very presentable both inside and out... parking is more than adequate.... More

First visit and it deserves a "WOW"! I had a king size bed room and the shower stall was glass. The outside view was awesome. To touch it off, the window drapes were ran by an electrical switch next to the bed.

We stopped in Riverside, IA to check out their casino and hotel. We had two great surprises! The first was that the hotel will take casino competitors hotel coupons and honor them if they have availability. The second surprise was when we entered the hotel room it has a clear glass window between the shower in the bathroom and the... More
